It causes me great sorrow to announce the death of my friend and co-worker, Keith B. Zimmer. Keith was the guy who by himself created the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Obits Index that has benefited so many Missouri genealogists. He spent almost twenty years working on this index, and by himself indexed almost 100 years of obits, death notices, and burial permits in this major newspaper.

Even more, however, Keith was a great friend and very nice guy. Work won't be the same without him--heck, life won't be the same without him. So long for now, big guy, and God bless,
